Schools Out!

My boys are home sleeping in today. It’s their first official day of summer vacation! And of course, they are in heaven knowing that they will have nearly 3 months off.

Luke, my youngest had his 5th grade graduation ceremony yesterday. We loved Mrs. Johnson! We were so grateful that she taught and cared for BOTH our boys as Nicholas also had her last year in 5th. She’ll be missed. Gosh, we’re gonna miss so many other teachers and staff members at this school. Crooked Lake Elementary was such a wonderful place for our family.

School’s Out! The end of 5th grade…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

To celebrate this graduation AND just the end of the school year for all, our family met up with my sister & her kids for ice cream afterwards. Our neighbor friend, Carter was able to join us, too!

We are going to miss Crooked Lake Elementary SOooo much! In fact, during the last few weeks we’ve been putting together little thank you gifts & notes to all the past teachers & staff members that we got to know well. I didn’t take photos of them all, because we gave them as soon as we put them together which made it less overwhelming to distribute – each kiddo only had to hand out a few at a time. But I DID take a photo of THESE thank you cards that I put together for three of the teachers who teach physical education at both Crooked Lake AND the middle school (we made gifts for teachers at Nick’s school, too).

Some thank you cards I made using images from the February 2018 & June 2016 Paper Pumpkin kits.…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The thank you image in this card comes from the February 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit, and the circular lines image on the punched out white circles comes from the June 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. (Yes, hang onto those past stamp set!)

Measurements:

  • Night of Navy Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside & scraps for punching two 2″ circles
  • Real Red Cardstock: 1-7/8″ x 4-1/4″
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock: 1-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Real Red 1/8″ Ribbon: about 2-1/2″

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store. The stamp sets from past Paper Pumpkin kits are no longer available. You need to be a subscriber to get these stamps. CLICK HERE to learn more about all the fun perks of a Paper Pumpkin subscription.

Directions:

  • Emboss the Night of Navy card base with the Simple Stripes embossing folder. Adhere the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White piece to the inside of the card.
  • Punch out a couple Whisper White 2″ circles, and stamp the circular lines image to the left and to the right on each circle using Real Red ink to give a look of baseball stitching.
  • Stamp the thank you image in Night of Navy ink on the lower left corner area of the Smoky Slate cardstock. Layer this onto the Real Red cardstock, and then add one of the baseballs under the lower left section (under the thank you). Adhere this whole thing to the Night of Navy embossed card base using lots of SNAIL and a few Glue Dots.
  • Attach the second baseball to the front of the card with Dimensionals. And add the ribbon (tied in a knot) using a Glue Dot.
  • Write a sweet note on the inside and gift to someone with a bag of peanuts. 😉

SYAT Favicon

We are ready for summer! The weather forecast looks good, so hopefully Luke (and even Nick with his knee brace) will get outside and hang out with neighbor friends on this first day of summer vacation! Happy June 8th to all of you.

Manly Moments May ’18 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

My son, Luke and I are heading up to my parents’ lake place in northern Minnesota for this Memorial Day weekend while my husband, Tim and our other son, Nick stay at home. Nicholas isn’t quite up to traveling that far yet (it’s almost a 4 hour drive), and Tim wants to work on finishing up our back deck. Hopefully Nick and hubby will enjoy having the house to themselves. And I hope you are all going to have a lovely weekend as well.

To start off your weekend on a creative note, I thought I’d share more alternate projects that I made with the contents of the May 2018 Manly Moments kit. I shared a few on Sunday last weekend, but today I’ve got for you a 12×12 scrapbook layout, some pretty origami star boxes, and seven alternate greeting card ideas. If you are one of my subscribers, be sure to take out your envelope of goodies I sent you so you can recreate one or more of these cards.

Be sure to watch my “how-to” video below (or on YouTube) for tips, measurements and directions. Then scroll down to see close up photos of the projects I share in this video, to see the supplies I used to create all these projects, AND to access some helpful links (ones that I refer to in the video).


Here are close-up photos of the projects I shared in my video above. I sure had fun creating them!

If you haven’t gotten your Paper Pumpkin kit yet, please don’t worry. Most subscribers are getting their kits early this coming week. I think those that get their kits earlier and start posting (like me this month) make others nervous that their kits are late. So rest easy and enjoy creating when it gets to your mailbox.

If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you may want to check out Paper Pumpkin kits from the past on YouTube along with videos I’ve made with the contents of these past kits on my YouTube channel. And then get signed up so you can get in on the June 2018 kit which was designed to coordinate with a new suite of products in our upcoming 2018-19 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog that debuts June 1st.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop – You Are My Anchor

It's a Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Yay! It’s time again to see lots of alternate Paper Pumpkin kit ideas!
#APaperPumpkinThing
Today is the day where a creative team of us Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators bring to you our special “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop. See what I have to share, then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see additional creative alternate paper crafting project ideas that we each came up with using the contents of the April 2018 “You Are My Anchor” Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop, simply scroll down to click on the names of other participants in the hop to see other creative projects.

This month’s kit is a fun one with a nautical look! Click here to see the April kit video put out by Stampin’ Up! where you can view how to make these sweet 3×3 note cards and gift boxes as intended.

Today I have put together a fun 12×12 scrapbook page and a coordinating candy bar wrap to share with you. See below for a full list of extra supplies I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements/Tips/Directions for the 12×12 page:

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 12″ x 12″
  • Island Indigo Cardstock: 3″ x 5-5/8″, 3-5/8″ x 5-5/8″, 2-5/8″ x 4-1/8″, 3-1/8″ x 2-5/8″ (2 pieces), 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Pool Party Cardstock: 2-7/8″ x 5-1/2″, 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, 2-1/2″ x 4″, 3″ x 2-1/2″ (2 pieces), 4″ x 5-1/4″

Mask the sentiment stamps with tape to ink them, then remove the mask before stamping. Use Fine Tip Glue to adhere the sequins. Add the layered photo mats to the page first. Then add the largest circle tag with a small amount of SNAIL Adhesive, and tuck the smaller circle tags in and around it so that their holes are concealed. Stamp the water images. Add the word banners and the large anchor with Dimensionals.

Measurements/Tips/Directions for the Green & Black brand candy bar wrap:

  • Pool Party Cardstock: 10″ x 2-1/2″ scored in at one end at 5-3/8″ and 5-5/8″ and then at 5/8″ and 7/8″ at the other end
  • Island Indigo Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 2-5/8″

Stamp “For You” on a small circle tag. Emboss the longest section of the Pool Party cardstock. Trim end to a “banner.” Add the Island Indigo layer under the embossed section with Tear & Tape Adhesive, and trim end to become a border to the Pool Party banner. Wrap around the candy bar and secure with Tear & Tape. Add the largest circle tag with Dimensionals, and tuck the smaller circle tags in and around it so that their holes are concealed. Use Fine Tip Glue to adhere the sequins. Add the anchor with Dimensionals.

On a side note for those of you who are wondering about Nicholas…
His surgery took place on May 1st. He has been in pain since, so we welcome the times he is fairly comfortable or napping.

Nicholas just is now recovering from knee surgery …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here is a post op photo when we were able to get a smile out of him. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

And Luke had a great time on his 5th grade overnight field trip. I attended with him for the first full day, so here are a few photos from this past Monday (the day before Nick’s surgery).

Luke had a great time at Long Lake Conservation Camp…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

A Great Card To Show Off Lots Of Paper Patterns

Painted Autumn is one of THE most popular suites in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

Painted Autumn Suite …#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The stamp set alone lends itself to such versatility. Have you seen the wreath cards I've made (on 9/15/17 and on 9/18/17)? And check out this card where that same image becomes a hedgehog.

Then… there are the drop-dead gorgeous designer papers! This is one of those packs that you may want to hoard, so maybe you should buy at least two. 😉 Here is a very easy but handsome Painted Autumn "grid" card that you can recreate. AND it displays a small piece from nine of the patterns.

Painted Autumn "grid" card - a Great Card To Show Off Lots Of Paper Patterns …#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I added Copper Metallic Thread in this second version. And I flipped some of the designer paper pieces over to give the card a less "random" look.

Painted Autumn "grid" card - a Great Card To Show Off Lots Of Paper Patterns …#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the details.

Supplies (Below is another product list with images of each that are linked to my online store.):

  • Stamps: Painted Harvest (144783)
  • Paper:
    • Cajun Craze cardstock (119684): 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” folded in half for the card base
    • Very Vanilla cardstock (101650): 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” for the inside of the card
    • Early Espresso cardstock (119686): 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”
    • Painted Autumn designer paper (144613): 9 squares that are 1” x 1” each
    • (Optional) Copper Metallic Thread (141696): about 30”
  • Ink: 126965 Cajun Craze, 126974 Early Espresso
  • Other: 126889 Stampin’ Trimmer, 103579 Paper Snips, 104332 SNAIL Adhesive, 104430 Dimensionals

Instructions:

  1. Decide on a pattern you’d like your designer paper squares to have. Lay them out on your 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” Early Espresso piece so they are spaced nicely. Then attach one at a time with SNAIL. Hints: If you put just a little SNAIL on each piece initially, you will be able to move the paper again later if it's not in the right spot. I also started adhering my corner squares first.
  2. (Optional) Put some SNAIL under the bottom left corner and upper right corner. Attach loops of Copper metallic thread so the thread loops will peek out.
  3. Position the 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” Early Espresso piece over the Cajun Craze card base without attaching yet. Use this piece as a guide and stamp the outline leaves image in Cajun Craze ink onto the card base so it will appear to be coming out from behind in the upper right and lower left corners.
  4. Attach the Early Espresso piece to the card front using Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the outside and inside sentiments with Early Espresso ink onto the card front and onto the 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” Very Vanilla piece.
  6. Attach the 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” Very Vanilla piece to the inside of the card.
  7. Stamp one more cluster of leaves on the left inner panel.
